LOUISIANA, USA, Feb 07, 2019 - Two new SPX® FLOW Bolting Rental Service Centers in Louisiana, USA, are proving to be a great advantage to customers in the area. Conveniently located in Sulphur and Gonzales, the new facilities offer significant advantages with comprehensive, local, OEM inventory covering hydraulic torque wrenches, spring return tensioners, nut splitters, pneumatic torque guns, hydraulic pumps, impact sockets and other ancillary equipment. Fully up and running, the centers are supported by experienced personnel and customers can be assured of rapid response and a comprehensive range of services to keep operations running smoothly, minimize any downtime, and reduce project timescales.

Alongside rentals, the new centers offer a comprehensive range of supporting services including calibration of pump gauges, torque wrenches, clicker wrenches and pneumatic torque guns along with expert repair services for SPX FLOW hydraulic pump units and all torque and tensioning tooling.
Following the opening of the centers in September 2018, SPX FLOW has already added two highly experienced sales personnel to help enhance customer experiences.

The centers both have comprehensive inventory to ensure fast response times and are supported by professional personnel with in-depth experience of energy industries. This includes two new members of our sales team, who both have over 20 years’ experience in serving oil & gas and petrochemical markets.”
